Karen L. Deal
Conductor and Compilation Producer

"The first rhythm a baby hears is the gentle, steady beat of its mother's heart...the first melody is that of her comforting voice. Now, Naxos has compiled over an hour of the world's most beloved and beautiful lullabies, including Brahms' Lullaby and Mozart's Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star for you and your baby to share together. The "Lullaby," or "Cradle Song," is a quiet composition found in the folk music of all countries for the past many centuries. It simulates a rocking motion by using a gentle, cyclical accompaniment pattern over which a beautiful melody is sung or played. Indeed lullabies were the first songs Anna Maria Mozart and Lea Salomon Mendelssohn sang to their sons Wolfgang and Felix. Parental love has always been expressed during the gentle, watchful moments when a mother or father comforts their infant to sleep. We invite you to join the parents of centuries past, as you share this beautiful music with your new baby."
